ENV 3180 - Ecology & Landscape History of the Green Mountains


In this course, students will spend three weeks in the field, exploring the ecology, natural history, cultural history, and modern issues found in the diverse ecosystems of the Green Mountains. During this time they will hike along America’s oldest long-distance hiking trail, the Long Trail. The formative ecological and geologic processes, historical movements, cultural patterns, and current issues in this landscape that will be our classroom are often similar across the globe. Through gaining first-hand experience investigating these processes, students develop a “tool kit” that they can use to self-educate, teach, and lead wherever they go. Students participating in the class will learn through a combination of fieldwork (labs), ecological interpretation, facilitated discussion, and lectures.
